Notes

======== Lyrics
Am Brunnen vor dem Tore, da steht ein Lindenbaum,
Ich träumt' in seinem Schatten so manchen süßen Traum.
Ich schnitt in seine Rinde so manches liebe Wort,
Es zog in Freud' und Leide zu ihm mich immer fort.

Ich musst' auch heute wandern, vorbei in tiefer Nacht
Da hab' ich noch im Dunkel die Augen zugemacht.
Und seine Zweige rauschten, als riefen sie mir zu:
Komm her zu mir, Geselle, hier findest du deine Ruh'.

Die kalten Winde bliesen mir grad' ins Angesicht,
Der Hut flog mir vom Kopfe, ich wendete mich nicht.
Nun bin ich manche Stunde entfernt von diesem Ort,
Und immer hör' ich's rauschen: Du fändest Ruhe dort.

======== Translation
Outside the gate's a fountain and an old lindentree;
Under its shady branches my dreams were sweet and free.
I carved in its old bark, so many phrases dear.
In times of joy and sadness it always drew me near.

Today I still must wander all through the gloomy night;
'twas then that in the darkness I closed my eyes so tight.
And I heard branches whisper ss if they called to me:
Come to me weary traveler, you'll find your peace with me.

The frigid winds were blowing against my face and me.
My hat flew into darkness, I did not turn to see.
Now I am many hours away from this old tree
And still I hear it whispering you'd find your peace with me.

Wer dieses Lied gesungen hat, kennt die Musik nicht. Wer es auch aufgeladen hat, scherzt vielleicht.
